This Fourth of July, John Cena has a few thoughts about what it means to be patriotic. 

Cena appears in a new public service announcement from the Ad Council about patriotism and what makes America the country it is today. 

“This year, patriotism shouldn’t just be about pride of country,” Cena says. “It should be about love.”

You can also watch a longer version of the spot on YouTube, with a few more jokes about Cena’s biceps.
